Student/teacher show at The Art Cellar
Sarah Winder is thrilled the debut show at The Art Cellar will highlight the work of a Colorado Mesa University professor and the artistic development of two of his students.
Joshua Butler, the printmaking professor at CMU, will show some of his pieces alongside work from students Candace Marolf and Matt Farrell, in a student/teacher show at The Art Cellar, 301 S. Main St., in Palisade.
An opening reception with Talon Wines and hors d’oeuvres will go from 5:30–8 p.m. Friday, March 21.
When The Art Cellar opened in November, Winder, the gallery director, said she wanted to highlight the work of art students and emerging regional artists, so this first show will be a taste of what the gallery wants to provide the local art scene.
“Printmaking has always been fascinating to me because very few really understand the in-depth process of printmaking,” Winder said. “Joshua Butler is the king of all-things printmaking. He was one of my top choices for a show because I’m a huge fan of his work.”
Winder said the selected pieces demonstrate different techniques in printmaking.
“It’s showing people where these students are learning and what they are doing,” Winder said. “It’s one of my main focuses this year, doing the student/teacher shows.”
None of Butler’s pieces will be for sale, but artwork from Marolf and Farrell will be. Both Butler and Farrell are planning to attend the reception. Marolf will be out of the country.
The Art Cellar is located in the renovated basement of Blue Pig Gallery, 119 W. Third St.
The Art Cellar is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
